I stayed for 2 nights at the end of October. I booked the single room with shared bathroom. In reality they gave me the room with shower but because they had problems with the hot water steam (that was setting off the fire alarm) it wasn't usable and I had a separate bathroom with shower and wc (very close to...

I enjoyed very much my stay in the hotel. It is very quite and charming. Conveniently located in the hearth of Bloomsbury, close to the British Library. In front of the hotel there is a beautiful garden. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. I liked the feeling of being in a traditional house. Breakfast is traditional, not many choice but... More

This was our fourth visit (Sept 27 - Oct 3). We like the double ensuite rooms on the first floor (American second floor). We're getting a little old for non-ensuite. There is at least one bath tub in the common area, for those who have trouble with the small shower. When we were there, there was a tremendous rainstorm at... More

We stayed here 6 nights in Sept. 2012. We had room 2 in the basement with 3 beds for 3 women. One of the beds was a cot, but it was very comfortable.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this hotel. I loved the charm and that the rooms and twisting staircases added quirkiness. The sitting room was well used by guests, which had a computer for use, although WIFI was available. It was nice to have a place where you could chat to others. The bedrooms were very clean and tastefully furnished.... More

I have been staying at the Crescent on London trips for several years on my own and with my ex-partner. The location in Bloomsbury cannot be beaten for people arriving at or departing from Kings Cross, Euston & St Pancras.

Crescent hotel is perfectly located within 10-15 minutes walking distance of Russell Square, King's Cross and Euston underground station. Together these 3 stations serves most of London's underground lines. Also, the location is perfect if you are into walking as many of London's attractions are within walking distance (2-4 km). The hotel itself is good. Nice and clean rooms. Good... More

This is a very welcoming hotel in an excellent location for access to transportation, the British Museum, Covent Garden, pubs, coffee shops, shopping. Traditional English furnishing, clean rooms, bathrooms, good English breakfast, tennis courts across the road, free internet access in nice lobby, the receptionist and manager were very friendly and accommodating. Good value for a London hotel.
